bestboats.com.au, or primeboats.com.au, or boatz.com.au or
boatingexperts.com.au or boatingcentre.com.au or boatsonthenet.com.au would
work just as well.

Er, having subdomains works just as well with non-generic names.

Evidence, folks, we need evidence - some evidence, any evidence - to support
this belief that generic names are somehow more memorable brands than
